Legal Services Package
Are you compliant? Have you set up your ongoing CPD programme?
From 1st November 2016 it is compulsory for all solicitors to follow the SRA’s new approach to ensuring ongoing competence. This involves individuals reflecting on current practice, identifying their current development needs, and addressing those needs in order to provide a proper standard of service to clients. Through creating Individual Learning Development Plans, usually based on objectives set out in Appraisals, it’s the responsibility of individuals to set out what their own development needs are, while it’s the organisation’s responsibility to provide solutions for individuals to address those needs.
Naturally many solicitors and fee-earners focus on elements of the law and practices in their particular field when assessing their needs, but it is also important to ensure that people are provided with ways to develop the ‘business’ aspects of their roles; leading teams, developing commercial awareness, appreciating what clients want in terms of service, and how to avoid complaints
Together with a firm of Suffolk solicitors we have developed a number of workshops specifically targeted to Solicitors, Fee-Earners and Support Staff to help in the development of these Business Skills which will help people to become more competent and also more effective in their roles.
The courses will be tailored to your organisations specific requirements. They can be half-day or full-day, for small or large groups, targeted at specific or varied experience levels depending on individual and your organisation’s needs. Courses can be carried out in your offices making them very cost-effective, or suitable venues can be sourced by us if you prefer the courses to be away from the office.
Examples of the courses are as follows, but remember we can create a course to meet your individual requirements. Click on the courses to see more:
